For the Wild at Heart

The Ranger Wildtrak is the result of an overwhelmingly positive public response to the Ranger Max Concept revealed at the Thailand Motor Expo in December 2008. The new Ranger Wildtrak is positioned as the urban lifestyle truck for customers who want a tough truck that compliments their active and urban lifestyle.

Ford adds exclusive exterior features to the Ranger with body-colored tailgate cladding, embossed Ranger branding, box rails and roof rails with aluminum bar accents, a frame mounted aluminum grey side step with titanium-colored end caps, a sports bar mounted on the pickup bed and distinctive decals on the front doors and tailgate to create the Wildtrak.

The unique-to-Wildtrak under rail bedliner, body side cladding, illuminated scuff plates with Wildtrak logo, and front bumper overrider bring new driving elements to the Ranger series. There are exclusive 16-inch Wildtrak alloy wheels that complete the overall design package of the Wildtrak. As with all Ford products where passenger safety is a high priority, the Ford Ranger Wildtrak is equipped with a four-sensor, three-channel, four-wheel antilock braking system (ABS) with Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) to provide maximum stopping confidence under all road conditions.

Along with proven truck toughness and capability, the new Ford Ranger's interiors offer car-like comfort and low NVH, thanks to ergonomically crafted seats, climate control, MP3-compatible audio and a body shell engineered to isolate the cabin from road noise even on the busy streets of Manila.

"The Ranger Wildtrak builds upon the new Ranger's Tough Style design and genuine class-leading Built Ford Tough strength and durability that have made it one of the most respected trucks in the market," said Ford Group Philippines Vice President for Marketing and Sales Steven Tan.

Drivers can choose from Wildtrak's three distinctive colours, Black Mica, Winning Blue and Cool White. The new Ford Ranger Wildtrak is available in a 4x2 Double Cab High Rider body style configuration and in 5-speed manual and 5-speed automatic transmissions, priced at PhP 1,080,000 and PhP 1,135,000, respectively.
